Chiellini: 'Inter and Napoli can't hide'

Giorgio Chiellini confessed Juventus are “a work in progress” under Maurizio Sarri, but Inter and Napoli “can’t pretend they’re not expected to win.”

The Bianconeri are beginning pre-season with their new Coach after five years of Max Allegri.

“Every Coach has his characteristics. Allegri was different to Antonio Conte, just as Sarri is different to Allegri,” Chiellini told Tuttomercatoweb.

Time's up for Rugani

Daniele Rugani takes one step forward and two back at Juventus, as Wayne Girard warns it’s time to move on.

This was meant to be Daniele Rugani’s year, having learned from the BBC of Leonardo Bonucci, Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini, the best defensive trio of this past generation. Instead, the Italy international finds himself unappreciated at Juventus.

When looking at the defence from a statistical point of view, one sees that not all has been right for the Old Lady, with an aging and jostled backline. This past season, Juventus saw its highest total goals allowed since the BBC trio’s unification.

Juve dealt Chiellini boost

Juventus have been boosted by the return of captain Giorgio Chiellini after he trained on Saturday.

Chielini missed Juve’s preseason tour of Asia with a calf injury, but Juve confirmed earlier that he worked with the group as usual.

Providing he stays fit, the defender should be available for next week’s International Champions Cup finale against Atletico Madrid in Sweden.

It comes amidst alleged concerns on the club’s part over the veteran’s long-term fitness.

Demiral as decisive as De Ligt

Juventus must embrace Merih Demiral, as Anthony Barbagallo insists the Turkish centre-back boasts the same potential as Matthijs de Ligt. 

Juventus look like they are juggling with two different projects at this current time. The Bianconeri have made a drastic coaching change and have added some new key signings to the squad – hoping these acquisitions can instantly solve the Old Lady’s Champions League drought.

Chiellini out of Juventus tour?

Giorgio Chiellini could miss the Juventus pre-season tour of Asia with a calf injury, it’s reported.

The captain has long suffered from recurring calf problems and heavy training loads have seemingly taken a lot out on the left leg.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Chiellini is struggling with the left calf issue and could be left out of the squad travelling to Asia this weekend.

Coach Maurizio Sarri will announce his squad list tomorrow and could include Chiellini, even if only to continue studying the new tactics in place.

'Juve brought me close to tears!'

Genoa defender Cristian Romero admits he ‘almost cried’ when he heard Giorgio Chiellini say that he was ‘waiting’ for him at Juventus.

The 21-year-old is on the verge of joining the Bianconeri in this window, for a fee reported to be in the region of €20m, although he could be loaned back to the Grifone for another season.

“Chiellini said he was waiting for me at Juventus. I almost cried tears of joy when I heard that,” he told Canal Show Sport in his native Argentina.

Tactical Analysis: Sarri's Juventus

Maurizio Sarri wasn’t always a 4-3-3 tactician, as Elio Salerno goes into a deep dive on what form his new-look Juventus will take.

Now that the speculation is finally over, we can begin considering what Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus will actually look like.

It is widely recognised that the outgoing Chelsea boss favours the 4-3-3 formation. It is the system Sarri deployed whilst at Napoli and continued to use during his single season in the Premier League. Juve have regularly used the same shape under Max Allegri, so it would come as no surprise to see their new tactician maintain that set-up. However, stubborn Sarri has not always been married to that ideology.

Suarez: 'I was in denial on Chiellini'

Uruguay international Luis Suarez admits he was “in denial” after biting Giorgio Chiellini’s shoulder during the 2014 World Cup and needed psychological help.

The incident occurred during a group game, which saw Italy lose 1-0, but it could’ve been very different with VAR, as Suarez got away with his attack on the defender.

“My wife asked me what happened and I told her we simply collided. I did not accept the reality, I was in denial, and that was a big mistake,” confessed Suarez on Fox Sports.
